We have read about how Gaikai and the Wikipad team have collaborated to come up with what they call the Wikipad gaming tablet in the past, where additional specifications about it were also leaked, so here we are at the (hopefully) final destination where it belongs – at GameStop store shelves this coming Halloween for $499 a pop. Pre-orders for the Wikipad gaming tablet at GameStop commences from September 7th onwards, where this tablet will feature the new NVIDIA Tegra 3 SoC, carrying the distinction of being the first tablet in the market that has an attachable console-quality gamepad controller. It will run on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean while sporting a 10.1” IPS display at 1280 x 800 resolution.

Just what will you do with $499 these days? Would you get yourself a new iPad, or perhaps settle for the newly introduced Kindle Fire HD 4G LTE from Amazon? Of course, others might be tempted by what they just read above and settle for the Wikipad gaming tablet instead. What is your play? A couple more shots of the Wikipad gaming tablet are available after the jump.
